Green Goddess Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Green Goddess Grilled Cheese Sandwich
April is National Grilled Cheese Month, so we’re celebrating by posting a grilled cheese sandwich every day. This is No. 5. See all of our grilled cheese sandwiches >> here << . After (re)discovering Green Goddess early last year, we’ve been obsessed, to the point that we even took the idea of Green Goddess herbs and made Summer Rolls. We thought we were brilliant when we thought we had come up with Green Goddess Grilled Cheese, but realized that another TasteSpotter had beat us to the green, herbaceous, garlicky punch… We love PaniniHappy’s version with the green goddess herbs mixed directly into cream cheese, but ours is a little different. Green Goddess Grilled Cheese Sandwich based on all those gorgeous green goddesses out there… makes 1 sandwich Ingredients Directions Spread about 1 tablespoon of Green Goddess Herb Pesto onto each slice of bread (2 tablespoons total, but if you’re sensitive, go light, the pesto is STRONG). Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a frying pan over medium low heat.

Better-Than-Fried Chicken Thighs with Lemon—Genius Recipes Every week—often with your help—Food52's Executive Editor Kristen Miglore is unearthing recipes that are nothing short of genius. Today: Kristen is gallavanting around on the Genius Recipes cookbook tour, so she's sharing an excerpt from the book (and a new favorite chicken recipe). "Short of turning chicken on a spit over live wood embers, I know of no better process for cooking chicken, nor one that delivers more satisfying or true flavors,” Paul Bertolli wrote of this technique, which he calls "bottom-up cooking," in Cooking by Hand. You don’t sear, and you don’t roast, and you don’t grill—you don’t do any of the things we’re taught to do to chicken. Instead, you lay the chicken, skin side down, in a barely hot pan.

Build A Better Lunch « We all know that packing lunches, whether it’s for work or for school, is a good idea. It saves money, it’s healthier than take-out or cafeteria food and hopefully we’re wasting less by using up leftovers. But bringing lunch every day seems to be one of those things that we all know we should do and plan on doing, but we make excuses when it actually comes down to doing it. For those of us who do actually manage to pack lunches, we often get stuck in a rut and pack the exact same thing every day. I like to have a lunch that I can look forward to. A turkey sandwich on whole wheat and an apple just isn’t going to cut it for me.

Avocado Stuffed Burger So this recipe was born thanks to some awesome farmers I always have at my local farmers market. Of course I only needed 5 avocados to whip up some amazing Avocado Chocolate Pudding and they always give me extra so I was stranded with extra green fat and didn’t know what to do with them. I remembered that I had a couple pounds of delicious grass fed ground beef defrosted from TX Bar Organics and just started looking around for inspiration. Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Lemons caught my eye and I decided that’s where I was going with this one. And I am darn glad I did, because these came out amazing. I found myself not putting as much filling in the burgers so I could just eat more.

Soft Boiled Egg in a Biscuit Today I’m going to share with you, one of the best things I’ve put into my mouth this year. It may not be much to look at from the outside, but crack these babies open and the fluffy cheddar and chive biscuit parts to reveal a soft boiled egg with a molten gold core. It may look like some kind of sorcery, but I assure you, there were no spells involved in the making of these magical biscuits. I wish I could lay claim to this brilliant idea, but I first saw something like this at Craftsman and Wolves in San Francisco, and I belive the idea comes from Texas baked eggs, where muffin tins are lined with biscuit dough and filled with a raw egg before being baked. The trouble with baking the eggs without being covered is that the top inevitably gets a little rubbery by the time the biscuit dough cooks through. By enclosing the whole egg in dough, it protects the egg, keeping it from drying out.

Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich Josh’s brother is visiting us from California and we are having a great time. Caleb sure loves having his uncle around and I love having another person to feed:) The other day the guys wanted a snack so I whipped up a bowl of guacamole and made homemade baked tortilla chips. The guys were still hungry so I offered to make grilled cheese sandwiches. There was still some guacamole left so I asked them if they wanted a Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich. I don’t know if they were crazy about the idea, but agreed to try it.

2-Minute French Toast in A Cup Who’s got the munchies? Ha! Seeing as our Cup of Coffee Cake (in Under 5 Minutes) was our most popular post of 2011, I thought y’all might enjoy my other favorite last minute snack, which is even quicker and easier and more fattening (and therefore more delicious/more embarrassing to admit I eat on a regular basis). It’s french toast in a cup, made in your microwave and topped off with a generous ssquirt of ssyrup (which is making my ssssss key kind of sssticky right now). So please, grab a slice of bread and allow me to blow your mind…
